    Girl me too lol!


    HAHA OMG I have them too!! I have been dreaming of Disney lately. Most of them have to do with my ADRs, like they lose my reservations. Last night I had a dream we were eating at Ohana.

    My mom had some crazy dream last night about disney too. There was a fire in whatever hotel we were staying in, and she said that I knew where the secret elevator was lol. She said I called it The alice in wonderland elevator. LOL! so odd.

    :rotfl2: I had a Disney nightmare last night too---and our soonest trip is still over 3 months away!

    This will be the first trip to WDW with my digital SLR camera (see recent pics from 4th of July here (also in my Christmas PTR)). I have been practicing and studying and loving every minute of it and CANNOT wait to get to WDW to really get some spectacular (by my standards) photos.

    So in my dream last night, I was riding Pirates with my camera trying to get some low-light shots of the ride. I went to switch lenses and sat the camera on the floor of the boat. When I got off the ride, I was holding a lens and my bag---but no camera :scared1: :scared1: I ran back to the CM loading the boats to tell her and she assured me she would check as they were unloading. Well, all the boats came around and no camera. Someone has taken it!!! I was so upset, so I started walking to away and what was that on the ground in front of me? MY POOR LITTLE CAMERA! It was broken, the LCD was completely cracked, the viewfinder's glass was missing, the knobs were broken off. It was horrible.

    So what did I learn from this nightmare? NO changing lenses on the ride. What's on is on and if I can't get my shot I'll ride again. NO putting the camera down unless it goes into the camera bag. No putting it on a bench while we rest, laying it on a table while we eat---it'll stay on my wrist, on my neck or in my bag, the end.

    I'm sure the nightmares will just get more frequent as time goes on, but the way I look at it is that they serve some sort of purpose usually---so they can't be all bad, right?? ;)

    Sweet dreams!
    Ann

    So glad to hear I'm not the only one having some crazy dreams!!

    The funny thing is, I really don't have a lot of trip related stress. Well, not yet anyway.

    Ooh, that LOST finale was so good! Definitely difficult to wrap your head around though. I think Loophole Locke was in the cabin and that circle was keeping him in it. Although, that really wouldn't explain why they were taking real Locke's body to the cabin. Oh no, now I'm going to have to go back and watch it tonight.

    HA! Your poor coworker. :rotfl: I hate when I have such realist dreams. I have memories where I can't even remember if it's real or a dream. That's really sad, seeing as I'm only 26. I should have a better memory than that. :rolleyes1

    I've had dreams about riding the new Space Mountain. Now, I'm interested to see if I was prophetic and the knew what the ride was going to be like even before it was refurbished. :lmao:

    I didn't know you hadn't been on TSM yet. You're going to LOVE it!!!! It's one of my new favorites. It seriously gives you your forearm a workout. Or, maybe I'm just severely out of shape? :lmao::rotfl:

    Ooh, I'd be so ticked if they lost my ADRs. What do you usually do to them once you find out in your dream? I'd be kicking some serious butt! :rotfl2:

    Ha, you saved the day! That's funny, even your mom is having Disney dreams.

    Oh, Ann! That seriously made me feel sick just reading about it--even though it was just a dream. I could picture myself doing something like that IRL. :scared: But hey, at least you learned a valuable lesson via your dream! That's the best kind.

    WOW!!! I just checked out your 4th pictures -- AMAZING!!! I especially love the one of your cousin with the angel wings and halo. I can't wait to see what kind of pictures you take on your trip in December.

    MUST. SAY. NO. TO. EBAY.

    Seriously, I have no willpower. I need to stay away from ebay until after our trip. I just sold a few things on there and of course, I immediately felt compelled to go use my newly earned money on Disney pins. Aaron told me to just wait until our trip. Did I listen? No. To my defense, I found two hard to find pins that I've been wanting for awhile and I got a GREAT deal on both of them.

    [​IMG]

    AND...

    [​IMG]

    The Mickey pin is a completer for the set. I wasn't able to find it back in October. It's been driving me CRAZY not having the final piece to the set.

    I swear though, I am NOT going to buy anything else from ebay until AFTER our trip. :rolleyes1

    :rotfl2: :rotfl2: I feel your pain!!

    I just bought 20 pins for trading while we are there, along with another 10 to add to my new "collection" :scared1: :rotfl: There is a really great thread on the collector's board that lists reliable pin sellers on e-bay. I've had a lot of success so far with Oliverjuiceyou21, TheWill, DomDisneyPin and Disney_Palace (maybe no underscore, I forget). It's so addicting!! The good part is, since they were traders I didn't want to spend much and a lot of them I won for about $2.00 each + .50 for shipping, not too shabby---only spent about $30 total. :thumbsup2

    AND---thanks for the nice words about the 4th of July pictures. I thought they came out pretty well, I'm really looking forward to our trip(s) to The World with my new stuff. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that if I come back with some great pictures to post on my TR I'll have some readers. :rolleyes1 My thought is, I'll post all the pics from day 1 of the trip and then tell everyone unless I have some comments---"no pictures for you!" :goodvibes

    Pins are SO addictive!! Once you start, it's REALLY hard to just do it in moderation. It doesn't help that I'm slightly compulsive. Oh well...I love it!

    Thanks for the ebay seller recommendations. I've actually used Oliverjuiceyou21 quite a few times. I've had a lot of luck w/ them. I try to stick w/ sellers who are selling the pin on the original pin card. It makes me feel a bit better when buying from them.

    Oh, I hope you don't hold out on the pictures. You are really an awesome photographer!! I can barely use my point and shoot. :rolleyes1 I'll be VERY UPSET if you only post one day's worth of pics!!!

    I do feel your pain though on getting PTR readers. At first, I was so concerned no one was reading. Then I realized that I had fun spilling all my randomness on here so I didn't care if I had tons of readers or not. I'm really happy with everyone who has contributed in this. Plus, I've been REALLY bad about DISing lately. I've just gotten busy with ::GASP:: other things that I have no time. Well, except when I'm at work. Shhh...don't tell. ;)

    Shocker...yet another off topic post! :rolleyes1

    I'm throwing my sister a co-ed baby shower next weekend and I need HELP! I was wondering what kind of activities/games we should do. Since men and women are going to be there, I want to do something entertaining for both genders. AND...they need to be something that visually impaired people can participate in. Here's what I've come up with:

    Diapers in the Dark

    How to play this baby shower game: Blindfold each guest, one by one, and instruct them that they will be timed to see how long it takes them to put the diaper on the "baby", but they will also be judged on how well their baby's diaper looks after they are through. As each guest starts, time them with a stop watch and have someone write down the times to keep track. Have the expectant mother be the judge of who did the best and neatest diaper job, and the fastest time.

    Baby Shower Price is Right!

    Items could include:
    1 Package of Diapers,
    1 Bottle of Baby Food
    1 Package of 100 q-tips
    1 Bottle of multivitamins
    1 Bottle of Baby Powder
    1 Pair of Baby Shoes
    1 Onesie
    1 Bottle
    1 Pacifier
    1 Elmo stuffed animal
    Any baby items that match your specific theme would be excellent items to have!
    Then, make a list of the baby items on one side and a blank line on the other. Click here for a free printable baby shower games card.

    How to play this free printable baby shower game: During the shower, give each guest a list and a pen. Show each item to the group and have them write down what they think it costs. Then have them add up their prices for all the items. The one closest to the actual total on your receipt (minus the tax) is the winner! Present the expectant mother with the baby items. She'll be needing them!

    Guess how many diapers

    Place several diapers in container and have participants guess how many are inside. The person closest will receive a prize.

    So...what do you guys think? Any suggestions???

    I think those baby shower games sound fun! We didn't have any real games at either of my baby showers - we just wanted to eat and yack :rotfl2: Boy, I'm glad that none of us have been bitten by the pin bug (yet) - I could see that becoming a problem quickly for me :lmao:

    Oh don't you worry, I will be coming back with pictures, pictures and more pictures. I will probably do a TR on this board and then do a photos only TR on the Photo Board, since I'm sure all of them are more interested seeing pictures than hearing my dining review for Jiko and Crystal Palace. :thumbsup2

    AND---the games for the shower look so cute, I love the baby in the dark one. I saw a funny game on "Girls Next Door" (yes, pathetic that I watch it, I know) and they put melted candy bars in a diaper and the girls has to smell/taste the candy bar poo to try to figure out which candy it was. Pretty disgusting and amusing all at once! :lmao:

    Oh no, we've been on TSM now. :) When we were there last May they were having some of the previews so we got to ride it before it was officially open! We all love it so much. :thumbsup2

    My oldest nephew, Erik (age 9), went in for surgery this afternoon to relieve severe pressure on his eye. A bit of back story -- Erik was has Congenital Glaucoma. Over his short life, he's had over 40 eye operations. He has zero vision in his left eye and some vision in his right "good" eye. He had a tube placed in his eye to help alleviate some of the pressure. Recently, it's has started to build up to severe levels. He's in surgery now, and they don't know if they'll be able to save his "good" eye. Which means, he will be completely blind.

    I just hate to see him go through this. He's so young! I know losing your vision is not a death sentence by any means. But still, the thought of being completely blind before you're ten years old?? It's hard to even comprehend.

    Whoa..I'm way behind! Lots of thoughts and prayer to you, your nephew Erik, and family. :angel: Love all the clothes you've bought...especially the baby clothes. The shower games sound great. We have a dirty diaper game for my shower. http://baby-shower.yeahbaby.com/game.php?page=103 It's gross but hilarious. :goodvibes

    Thanks so much everyone for the prayers! :hug: We all really appreciate it! The doctor wasn't able to perform the surgery the way he originally planned because the pressure was higher than they thought. However, they did this experimental surgery procedure they think might help relieve some of it. The don't how long this will hold off the pressure build up, but it did temporarily fix it. He's also on several different meds to help with the pressure build up. So far, so good!

    THANK GOODNESS!!! We don't know what the future will hold for his vision, but for now he can see out of that eye. We are just so relieved that he's been blessed with this small miracle right now. He deserved it! Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers. :grouphug:

    Those pins really are hard to find! I lucked out and got three during our October trip. I found Stitch online after we got home. I was missing Mickey forever and I hated it! I put all my pins on a display board and I had this missing piece. It seriously stressed me out. I think I'm OCD about my pins. :rotfl2:

    Ooh, make sure to link it in your signature. Otherwise, I'm going to have to stalk the boards for it. :rotfl:

    Ha! My other sister suggested we do the candy bar thing too. Don't feel too bad, I watch "The Bachelorette" religiously so I have no room to judge on guilty TV pleasures. Anyway, I was thinking about doing the game but my sister's boyfriend didn't trust me. He has this feeling I'm going to go out and scoop up dog pooh to put in the diapers instead of candy bars. :confused3 I'm not sure where he'd ever come up w/ an idea like that. I'm very sweet. :rolleyes1

    Ah, ok...I guess I got confused (which is VERY easy). That's so cool you got to ride it during the previews. Sounds like fun!! What's your highest score on there?

    Thank you!

    I'm really want to do the dirty diaper game. I think it would be hilarious. Plus, none of the people attending are so uppity that they wouldn't appreciate it. And if anyone has a problem with it, I might just have to shove one of the dirty diapers in their face! Just kidding, of course. :rolleyes1
